Paul Finebaum continues ranting against Michigan fans, calls them the most arrogant

Paul Finebaum continues ranting against Michigan fans, calls them the most arrogant

ESPN and SEC Network personality Paul Finebaum really, really doesnt like the Michigan Wolverines or their fans. In February, Finebaum went after Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, calling him the Donald Trump of college football, and in September, Finebaum asked Is there a more pathetic fan base in America than the University of Michigan? What a whiny and sniveling bunch. In October, Finebaum called Michigan fans some of the most unrealistic people that Ive ever encountered and said When you win a championship, call me back. Hes at it again; when Finebaum appeared on Mike and Mike (with guest hosts Jon Stugotz Weiner and Mike Golic Jr.) on ESPN2 Thursday, he once again decided to go blue

This starts with Finebaum beginning his segment by asking unprovoked about an alleged Michigan fan who preceded him, saying No way hes a Michigan fan, because there was an ounce, a modicum of humility, and I have never met a Michigan fan that had an ounce of humility or didnt think his team was the greatest of all time regardless of the record, especially since Jim Harbaugh has arrived, so that was a fraud. Stugotz then asks Finebaum Can we stay right there for a moment, what is the most arrogant fanbase, college fanbase in America?

Finebaum answers Well, as you know, doing a talk show, Michigan fans lately have been the worst, because they have won, lets see, half a national championship in about 60 years, and they talk like theyre Alabama, Ohio State, USC, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Penn State wrapped into one. So Im starting and finishing right there. A lot of people will come after SEC schools, and maybe Im tone-deaf to Alabama fans because I lived in Alabama for 30 years, I hear that occasionally, but Im pretty firm on Michigan. Youre not going to move me on this Thursday morning.

Golic Jr. then goes Paul, I couldnt agree with you more, these Michigan fans out here trying to parade around like their programs Notre Dame (his alma mater) or something, and Finebaum goes Oh, Notre Dame, I forgot them! with a laugh, leading to Stugotzs Thank you, Paul, thats where I wanted you to go! But Finebaum then doubles down on Michigan: Let me say this, Mike, I respect Notre Dame. I dont respect Michigan. Notre Dame stands for something, Notre Dame doesnt think its better than everyone else, because it has a record, it for the most part has stood on integrity and tradition. Michigan thinks its better than everyone else and I dont understand why. Its a good school, but its not Harvard, its not Princeton, its the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. So I just get freaked out when Michigan fans walk around like theyve done something. When Harbaugh showed up, it gave them a sense of entitlement that they really havent earned.
